Fabulous . Fantastic. And a whole chapter on Uttam. Woo to the hoo.

Had I not read this, I would never have known what a harsh critic this man was. HE was a student of cinema and an artist who wanted due respect for the art form. A must read for all Ray fans and genuine cinema lovers.

A great book, watching Cinema from the prospective of the master director, A must have for all Film Students as well as for Cinema enthusiasts.....
Hmm...difficult to say anything. When I saw his movies I expected a man who sees the emotional world behind the logical one. When I read the book, I found a man who has the acute cerebral idea that goes behind each of his works. So I am confused and will have to read more and see more of his movies to have a wider and deeper perspective.
Insights most welcome
Written very well...
I think this is the first book of Ray that fell short of my expectations. Some of the articles were really interesting. All of them are well-written. It has good photographs and great illustrations by Ray himself. However, some articles gave a feeling that - they are there just because he wrote it and because they were not included in any other collection of his.
Not as great as Fellini On Fellini but a brilliant read nevertheless, at least for aspiring film-makers.
